  1. I had my first liposuction surgery this Tuesday 23/4/13 done by Mike Szalay at Precision Cosmetic Surgery in Brisbane. He was very thorough in his consult and pre op chat, and after surgery I felt honestly so great! He uses twilight anesthetic so you are not fully under but to me it was just like a general, never noticed a thing! The advantage is huge, afterwards you just get dressed and go! The nurses were funny and chatty and sweet and helped me get dressed and waited for my hubby to pick me up. Post op check up the next day was good too, I really thought I would feel very sore and bashed up but not at all. Just felt like I had done a few too many sit ups! I had upper and lower abdomen done and was scheduled to go back for my flanks and outer thighs on 14/5. He cancelled. He didn't want to risk my skin sagging and refunded. I was very very upset! He told me he only took 350ml from both areas in total. I have since seen a different surgeon and had more lipo done by him with stunning results, please see my other post for more info there. He took 3L in total. That should tell you all you need to know. Just the fact that Szalay cancelled upset me greatly but paying for no results is a lot worse!
  2. Hi Has anyone been with TCI Bondi to have liposuction? Im very interesred in getting this done. The fatty pockets on my hips don't want to go away. Does anyone know which hospitals they do these procedures at? I think last year there were anaesthetic issues and cardiac arrest? Any info would be appreciated.
  3. ** rewritten here because I originally posted this in the wrong section ** Hi lovely ladies (and Mums in particular) I have recently had breast augmentation surgery and am very happy with everything 'up there'. As a mum of two children with no plans to have more I am now considering having other areas of my post-baby body corrected, I had two caesareans! Namely, hips, bottom and stomach - I would like to look at liposuction. Or is it liposculpture? Can anyone here explain the difference between the two and, if you had it, where you went (Sydney NSW preferably), why you chose that doctor, and how it went? Should I be expecting as good a result as my breasts? Thanks in advance! xx
  4. I thought I would share my surgery experience, even though I haven't felt particularly welcomed on this forum. I think that is because I am one liposuction patient in a sea of breast augmentations. I hope others in a similar situation find this review helpful. My journey initially started about 2 years ago when I decided that my weight was becoming a problem and I thought that lipo would be the answer. I had a consultation with Dr Chen at Ashbury in Brisbane as a friend had a breast augmentation by him a few years ago and raved about him and the clinic. At the initial consultation he advised that I would need liposuction to my stomach, love handles and inner and outer thighs to get the result I was after. This came in at more than $10k which was just too expensive. I knew I had to make a mental change before I looked at surgery so I knuckled down and lost about 15kg - problem was while I did lose weight from my belly there was still a pocket of fat that I just couldn't remove - so back to Dr Chen I went in March this year. He said he was impressed that I had lost weight on my own and we talked about what I would like to see. Honestly, I just wanted to have a flat stomach so we agreed to liposuction fat from my upper and lower abdominals and also my flanks. I felt very at ease with Dr Chen and I booked the surgery for June 24th. I was beyond excited about the surgery, but I did get nervous as the date approached, I was quite worried about the pain I would be in after the surgery and also any yucky side effects from the pain medication and antibiotics. On the morning of the surgery I showered at home with an antibacterial wash and then headed into the clinic at 7.30am. I seemed to be the only patient there on the day, which was kind of nice, the receptionist greeted me by name, as did the lovely nurse. I was pretty much taken straight into the consultation room where I had a good chat with the nurse and she took me through all the paperwork, let me know exactly what would be happening, the risks, the aftercare, everything - she was so thorough which was reassuring. Once we had finished she let me get changed into the gown and I took 2 valium to get me "into the right headspace for surgery" as she put it. I laid down for probably an hour on a bed under a really nice soft warm blanket. I didn't sleep, but shut my eyes and was just very relaxed. Dr Chen came in next and he marked me up for surgery and took some photos. He asked if I was ready and if I had any last questions for him which I didn't as the nurse had been so thorough earlier. We went into the room where the surgery would take place, I stood on a mat and they wiped me with the antibacterial solution over my whole mid section which was quite cold! I laid down on the table with my arms out and they put the needle into my wrist, and the heart rate monitor on. With the liposuction I was lucky enough to just have twilight sedation. I was semi with it during the surgery, I can vaguely remember the incisions for the tubes be made, and not too much after that. At one stage I did wake a bit because my shoulder was hurting from laying on my side. At no stage did I feel any pain or discomfort. The next thing I remember is the nurse sitting me up and helping me into my compression garment. Let me say it is not attractive at all - your post op bras are one thing, this suit takes it to another level, it goes from just under my boobs to my knees and it's crotchless! She took me into the recovery room and I sat down to have a few cups of tea and some cheese and bickies. My husband was in and out of meetings for a lot of the day so I had to wait in recovery for about 90 minutes for him - but they would have let me go about 30 minutes after surgery if he was there. You are advised to bring some old towels with you to pop on the car seat for the drive home to catch the fluid that leaks from the wounds in the first 72 hours. I really only had leakage for the first 24 hours, I think because I wasn't having a huge amount of fat removed. My best advise is to fold a small towel in half and safety pin it around the sections suctioned to catch any leakage once you are at home. I was given a few plastic sheets to bring home with me too which was great, I put one on the bed and one on the couch. Pain - I was so surprised with the pain, it was NOTHING like I expected in a GOOD way! I wanted to stay on top of the pain initially so I took 2 panadeine forte once I got home and then again for the next 3 nights, however during the day I wasn't having any pain relief. Yes, there was pain and discomfort, especially when getting up and down, but if I was just still it was fine. I wanted to get up and moving pretty much straight away so I went for a walk each day after surgery, the first day was pretty slow and sore, but I think it has helped get the swelling moving. I am now 9 days post op and am feeling great, pain is pretty much gone and I am itching to get back into running again, I think I will give that a go in another week. I am still wearing the compression garment, and will for about 4 weeks. For another week I also have a thin foam pad over my belly too, this is helping the skin flatten out as there was a small roll of loose skin above my belly button, to be expected when you are getting the fat sucked out! I have had the pad on there since my follow up appointment last Saturday, and it looks like it is pretty much flat, but I will keep it there for another week just to be sure. I haven't really had much bruising, but my abdomen has never really bruised. I'm not saying there's none, but it's pretty mild. The numbness is real, and very weird - it's important to massage the areas suctioned to prevent scar tissue and it's weird to do when those areas are numb. I'm used to it now, and I'm getting slightly more feeling back each day. So, am I happy?? YES, I am so happy with my results so far, I know there is still a bit of swelling in the areas but it's going down each day. I cannot wait to be in a bikini again in summer, and it's so nice not to have a roll of fat to hide everytime I sit down. I hope this novel is useful for anyone considering liposuction - I would recommend being very honest with yourself about weight you can lose on your own, and then using liposuction to just sculpt the last little bits that you may not be able to lose on your own.
  5. Hi I am new to this site . I wanted to share my mummy make over that I underwent with Dr Tavakoli. I underwent a mummy make over 5 months ago. It Consisted of a breast lift and a full abdominoplasty / tummy tuck. My plastic Surgeon was Dr Tavakoli . I chose Dr T for many reasons the first was because he is the best in the industry and he was also very honest and informative. I can not thank Dr T enough , He has restored my confidence in myself and my body . My breast look amazing and my tummy looks so flat and feels so nice and tight. Dr tavakoli was with me from start to finish and he was there when I woke up in recovery. I did everything Dr T said to do and took all my pain medication . The only mild pain was my tummy and it passed over time. The scares on my breasts and tummy are amazing for 5 months , they have faded so much and will continue to fade over time. Dr Tavakoli is the god of plastic surgery and also a true gentlemen. I can recommend him highly. I have booked in with Dr T In April for a Thigh Lift , Vaser Liposculpture, fat grafting to the buttock and face and a breast Augmentation. #loveDrT
  6. WOW! Is all I can say! I had my first liposuction surgery this Tuesday 23/4/13 done by Mike Szalay at Precision Cosmetic Laser & Surgery and oh my god he is wonderful. He was very sweet and very thorough in his consult and pre op chat, and after surgery I felt honestly so great! He uses twilight anesthetic so you are not fully under but to me it was just like a general, never noticed a thing! The advantage is huge, afterwards you just get dressed and go! The nurses were funny and chatty and sweet and helped me get dressed and waited for my hubby to pick me up. Post op check up the next day was good too, I really thought I would feel very sore and bashed up but not at all. Just felt like I had done a few too many sit ups! I had upper and lower abdomen done and will go back for my flanks and outer thighs on 14/5. I cannot wait! I feel so good and there is hardly any bruising (again, I expected to be black and blue by now,day3) but no bruising to speak of at all and already slimming down! I can recommend Doctor Szalay to everyone!
  7. I have an appointment next week with Dr. Huy Tang from the Cosmetic Institute for Liposuction. Has anyone had Liposuction with the Cosmetic Institute or had Surgery with Dr Tang? The prices at the cosmetic institute are really good, but i hope the work is good as well.

  9. Hi all, I've begun the road to researching liposculpture & liposuction and am finding the amount of surgeons & clinics overwhelming, I was wondering if anyone might have suggestions for Brisbane surgeons? Any info would be much appreciated, recommendations & previous experiences are more comforting than just a solo gamble! Bree
